Rotate the paper ninety degrees and score at 3 3/4 inches and 8 1/4 inches. Fold on all the score lines. Cut along the 4 1/2 inches and 7 1/2 inches lines to the first intersecting line on both sides. Fold up the two center pieces and fit and glue the outer pieces to create the box. Fold down the scored tabs and stick together. Cut a 3 inches x 7 inches rectangle from coordinating cardstock and score at 3 inches and 5 inches. This will be the clasp on the handbag. Shape the corners of the front of the clasp with a corner rounder punch. Valley fold on the score lines. Fit and mat the clasp on to the card. Cut two strips of 1-inch x 12 inches from coordinating paper and fold in half length wise to create the handles. Attach the handles to each corner with brads. Add a magnet to the front of the bag and underneath the clasp to create the closure. Optional cut matching paper to line inside of bag. Cut two pieces of paper at 2 3/4 inches by 3 3/4 inches and two pieces of paper 4 inches by 4 1/2 inches to line the inside of the hand bag. Stamp, die cut and color 12 lilac petals and one lilac bush. Color and shape individual petals and bush with berry burst and lemon lime twist ink. Add lavender prills and clear glitter to the middle of each lilac petal. Glue to the front of the handbag clasp. Add a border of ribbon to the bottom of the handbag. To make the tassel cut one piece of light green paper 1 3/4 inches by 12 inches long. Cut up 1 1/2 inches with scissors or fringe scissors. Roll up and glue tassel. Punch a hole in the top the tassel and thread ribbon through to tie on one of the handles of the handbag.
